Photo a Day

28 Jun

I’ve been reading this really fun blogger and I think you should too.  Her name is Chantelle and she writes a blog called Fat Mum Slim over in Australia. I totally welled up reading her post about moving out of a place that meant a lot to her. (I’ll wait here while you click over and read it. Go ahead, it’s short and completely worth your time….Are you back? See? It was totally worth it, right?) The reason it touched me so much was because I could really relate. I felt the same way about my NYC apartment. I moved in as a young, single girl with a roommate and moved out as a wife and new mother. I even met Pablo at a party in that apartment. To say I was very emotional when we left is an understatement!

Anyway, in addition to writing blog posts that make me cry, Chantelle does this cool challenge each month called Photo A Day. I keep telling myself I’m going to do it but I never get around to it. But in July, it’s going to happen! Won’t you join me?

Here’s the challenge. Take one picture each day based on her prompt below. There’s no wrong way to do it.  You can interpret her word/phrase any way you want.  It’s just meant to be fun so don’t beat yourself up if you miss a day.

So, it looks like with July 1st we start with a Self Portrait. I think that’ll be the hardest one for me! Oh, good.  I’ve got 31 days to find a better looking toothbrush. Here’s the list:

You can find Chantelle’s helpful hints here. And where to post your pics here. I think I’ll be sharing my pics on Instagram so follow me over there. My user name is sueerneta. Here are a few of my recent Instagram pics to inspire you.

Have fun! Happy snapping!
